    NEW DELHI – For nearly 30 years, India and Bangladesh have argued over control of a tiny rock island in the Bay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have resolved the dispute for them: the island's gone.

    Sea level cannot be rising, that would prove global warming.
    Therefore the island must have sunk.

    Can't do a thing with him. He seems to think flea medicine is covered under the health care reform bill.

    He watches some left wing poodle pundits on the Animal Channel.

    Something out of a Terry Pratchett novel... Name of the novel is Jingo.
